Love Liberates

Love Liberates

Love liberates...amen!
And I found it in the Son
Who said the truth shall set you free
He has love for everyone 
The saddest thing in this whole world
And I see it constantly
Is men's neglect of the love of God
Who died on Calvary

Love that surrendered Himself to men
To die on a cruel Cross
For the humiliation that was heaped upon Him
For our gain and to His loss
Not a weakly human being
But God in His Sovereignty 
Dismissing the power of death over us
And offering us Eternity!

Love in all its liberating power
Creates a song for a soul set free
For sin which once held us all at bay
Has lost its authority
Jesus said that we would perish
Except that if we would repent
Hallelujah for that loving Saviour
Who'll indwell a soul such bent!!!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
